Biomimicry accelerates the kinds of breakthroughs we need to halve carbon emissions over the next decade. Meet the seven teams who have advanced to the second stage of the Biomimicry Launchpad, where they’re working to bring their nature-inspired solutions to life.
Meet Carlos Rego, a biomimicry specialist and designer at Logoplaste Innovation Lab in Portugal. Watch as Carlos sits down with biomimicry educator and biologist Sherry Ritter to share how he has incorporated biomimicry into his work and his life.
As a science educator, I feel we can and should do a far better job of helping people see and understand the systems that govern our world, and internalize the lessons they can teach us.
At its heart, Bioneers is a nexus to explore nature-inspired solutions to social and environmental challenges. This year’s summit also served as the culmination of the third-annual Biomimicry Global Design Challenge, sponsored by the Biomimicry Institute in partnership with the Ray C. Anderson Foundation. Sierra Magazine profiled each of the teams who took the stage at Bioneers this year, sharing details about their planet-saving innovations.
